made over the weekend between president obama and house speaker john boehner so there hasn't been a lot of concrete progress, but there is total progress in terms of the mood that members take into this. over the weekend we heard republican senators, as you alluded to, larry, breaking the so-called grover norquist pledge against raising taxes and white house press secretary jay carney reacted positively. >> some of the comments you mentioned are welcome, and they represent what we hope is a difference in tone and approach to these problems and a recognition that a balanced approach to deficit reduction is the right approach. it's the one that's most beneficial for our economy. >> reporter: larry, what i would say is tax increases does not necessarily, despite the rhetoric on both sides, and especially from democrats, does not necessarily have to mean increases in tax rates. it is possible, if you look at the estate tax, if you look at the treatment of dividends, capital gains and carried interest and take a look at loopholes and deductions to raise a significant amount of revenue from p
seems to welcome a bust on the wall of shame, used to beg for it, is more powerful than speaker john boehner. norquist is more powerful than boehner. it feels as if the air went out of the compromise zeppelin. hey, like the graph zeppelin, like, lakehurst. retail, now we're hearing that there wasn't as much follow-through to the initial sales from thursday night. i think it's nonsense, but macy's and costco, vf, coach and ralph lauren were tagged with huge losses today. i believe the holiday sales are flat-out strong. amazing numbers from apple, like a rocket since it hit the 505 level last week. terrific ipad mini sales. wasn't that a product the doom and gloomers had written off as still born a few weeks ago like the iphone 4, by the way? i believe the chinese momentum is lasting. europe, total black box. one that's being minimized in its importance for american companies. the fiscal cliff, i saw a step backward in the hardening of positions. those who think rising above is a political judgment, when it is a judgment about the need to rid washington of politics. that even a fool kn
, the president and speaker boehner did talk on the phone on saturday. john harwood live in washington with the latest. john? >> carl, you know, the president and the speaker had a conversation over the weekend. there haven't been too many meetings at the staff level or the principals level. but there has been something that changed about the atmosphere post election. and what you've seen is more and more republicans coming out and being willing to say out loud they're willing to raise taxes of some kind. whether or not it's tax rates or tax revenue in a way they weren't willing to do in 2011 when john boehner and the president were negotiating an attempted grand bargain then. we saw one on the sunday shows over the weekend, that was lindsey graham of south carolina and then bob corker of tennessee. let's take a listen to their comments. >> i agree we shouldn't raise rates, but i think grover is wrong when it comes to we can't cap deductions and buy down debt. what do you do with the money? -- i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country only if democrats wi
this really is taxmaggedon. >> you heard it there, maria. house speaker john boehner says that he wants obama care on the table in this fiscal cliff negotiation. the president has said he's willing to thereon any good ideas. i'm not sure if he's going to think this is a good idea. you think he might listen to this one? >> i think he'll listen, but i think at the end of the day, it's going to be what are in the details. i think what we need to remember, what came out of this election, the clear mandate of this election was two things. number one, for our leaders to come together in a bipartisan manner to put everything on the table, to find real solutions. number two, that the majority of americans agreed with president obama's vision of one of the ways to fix the fiscal cliff had to be to put new revees and to raise the tax rates of the wealthiest americans. president obama won eight out of the ten wealthiest counties in this country in this election, randi, which means even the wealthiest understand they have to put some skin in the game. so i think that going into this, i applaud senator ch

. and that would not be good, but speaker of the house, john boehner along with mitch mcconnell represents republicans at the negotiating table, says he's open to finding the federal government more ways it take in money. >> to show our seriousness, we'll put revenue on the table as long as it's accompanied by significant spending cuts. and while we're going to continue to have revenue on the table. for my colleagues to show the american people that we're serious about cutting spending and solving our fiscal dilemma. but, just because speaker boehner says he backs new revenue doesn't mean we should expect him to suddenly support a big tax increase for the wealthiest americans. >> president obama wants to let the bush era tax cuts expire, so, the top marginal tax rate would rise from 35% to 39.6% and that's going to be a major sticking point in the next month or so, but a month might be all it takes to make a deal because the senate majority leader harry reid seems to think that something can be done by mid december. >> we have a cornerstone of being able to work something out. we're both g
's stupid. >> john boehner said no rates are going up two weeks ago. >> so the other one is total gridlock, which looks possible at this point. >> then you get a fiscal cliff scenario. that's when those cuts actually kick in and there is no other way to say it. it will be pretty bad. you'll get tax increases and budget cuts. some fiscal conservatives would say that's the economy, which is only growing at 2%, would take such a jolt. i think the markets could do down below 10,000. >> your third scenario would be a grand bargain. what would that look like and would this be good for obama's legacy? >> it would be great for his legacy. he believes his legacy is about fairness. one of the things he has run on, follow him economically, i'm very concerned about it, is this notion of tax fairness. that the rich have gotten richness while the poor have gotten poorer. there are statistics that back that up. but he doesn't really take into account the economic impact of raising those upper rates. it's more than upper rates that he wants to raise, it's taxes on dividends, capital gains to pay for obam

and frankly for house speaker john boehner. he may want to cut a deal but may not have the votes because these guys might be on a primary suicide mission, some of these house republicans, if they side with raising tax rates. if they raise taxes they will lose the primary and there's no general election, they don't have to where he about voters. >> are democrats signaling where they may be willing to compromise? >> reporter: president has been willing to talk about social security and medicare and put entitlements on the table. the problem the president has is many parts of his base, including some of those house democrats that he might need in some sort of forged compromise, they are not crazy about doing that. we won. the mandate is to raise taxes. there was no mandate from the voters to tinker with social security and tinker with medicare, but at some point the president's going to put that on the table, and the question will his base let him do it? >> let me switch gears a bit. i want to ask you about senator john mccain. he, of course, has been very critical about the potential nomin
and john boehner to bring their wings of the parties back in for any sort of a deal. because it seems like both sides are getting their back up at this point. >> well, i don't think it's making it more difficult, becky. i think what happens is at the beginning of a negotiation, everybody is sort of staking out their positions and their demands. you know, the demand by democrats, for example, that social security and medicare not be part of this discussion, that's not a sustainable demand. everybody knows that entitlement programs, the president has said so, have to be part of this. now, exactly what proportion and when they're part of it, those are things that you can talk about, but, no, they are part of this deal. so are tax increases, and, you know, republicans taking out the position that, well, we can't touch tax rates, we can touch tax loopholes, everybody's got to wait and see how the math adds up. this is an extremely complicated and difficult thing. >> i don't think -- i don't think it's well done to be negotiating in public like this because it only makes it more difficult. i wis
